Gesc'lls(linrts-|{iicli(hiick< rci Briidi r llolliiifk, Vienna. 


The fact of its having become necessary te issue a 
new edition of this brief (xuide of Vienna and Environs 
is in itself an evidence of its usefulness and practical value 
to English speaking travellers. In this carefully revised 
edition jjarticular attention has been given fi-om the very 
lioginning to familiarize foreigners speedily with the customs 
and peculiarities of Vienna, so as to save them from errors 
and impositions. A very careful selection has been made of 
the hotels and restaurants recommended to travellers, an 
excess of such localities being apt to puzzle the inquirer. 
With regard to sights open to public view, it was hardly 
possible to make so critical a choice, because in this case 
too much depends upon the sight-seer's individual taste and 
general standard of education. In spite of the restrictions w-e 
have im^DOsed on ourselves in drawing up the „Historical 
Survey ■, the brief statements given will sutfice to acquaint 
the Reade with the most important features in the past 
history of Vienna. The splendid development of our imperial 
city and the loveliness of its landscape scenery and archi- 
tectural beauty will be amply revealed to the eye of the 
traveller even during a brief sojourn here. 





The stations of the railways terminating in Vienna are 
uhnost all near the centre of the City, viz: The Franz 
Josef-Bahn, IX. District, — the Nordbahn (Northern 
Railway) and the Nordwestbahn (North-Western Railway), 
II. District, — the S t a a t s b a h n and S ii d b a h n (Sonthern 
Railway), X. District, — the Westbahn, XV. District and 
the W i e n - A s p an g -B a h n. III. District, finally the W i e n- 
Z 1 1 a m t - M e i d 1 i n g - H ii 1 1 e 1 d r f e r V e r li i n d u n g s- 
l)ahn (Junction line Vienna-Customhouse-Meidling-Hiittel- 
dorf), III.. XII. and XIII. Districts. The Stadtbahn (Metro- 
politan Railway) connects the termini with one another and 
brings the trains from abroad into the very heart of the City. 

Passengers arriving by Steamer from Budapest must 
change the large steamer for a smaller one at Kaiser- 
Ebersdorf, those coming from Linz must do so at Nuss- 
dorf, as the larger steamers cannot enter the Canal; in 
the former case the passengers land at the Office of the 
Danube Navigation Company, in the latter case they land 
on the Franz Josefs-Quai, opposite the „Hotel Metropole". 


After leaving the railway-car or steamboat, give your 
luggage-check to a porter, whose number you will do well 
to remember, who provides the recovery of the luggage, 
which after examination by the custom-house officers, he 
carries to the coach and, if desired, also to the Hotel. You 
give him from 40 to (iO hellers for taking the luggage to 
the coach. 


Fiacres (two-horse coaches') and Comfortables (one-horse) 
have their stands at each terminus of the railways and 

steamboats, The Taritf (see page . . .) is displayed in every 
vehicle. Tramway-cars and Omnibuses (see page 16, 17) 
run to every terminus. Some of the larger hotels send their 
own hotel omnibuses to the termini. 


stand in all frequented streets, before hotels etc. (see page . . .). 
Charge for an errand in the same district 20 heller, to an 
adjoiiiing district 40 heller, to any other district Krone 1.20 
or more, according to distance. The same charges for return- 
ing an answer. There is a special taritf for longer services, 
which every Commissionaire is bound to have with him 
and to submit for inspection if required. 


Although the Crown C'urrency (Kronenwiihrung) has 
been generally in use since January 1., 1900, there are still 
in circulation State-notes of 5 and 50 florins, and Bank- 
notes of 10, 100 and lOO'i florins. There are in circulation 
bronze coins of 1 and 2 hellers, nickle coins of 1 Krone =^ 
100 heller ^^ 50 kreuzers, and One-Florin pieces. (Par-rate 
of exchange, therefore equivalent to i3aper money.) Gold 
coins (of 10 and 20 crowns) are but rarely met with in 
common circulation. As the premium (agio) on gold is 
constantly fluctuating, it is advisable for travellers, imme- 
diately after their arrival, to get their money changed at 
a banking or exchange office. 

Yienna Association for ilio interests of tlie City and for 
promoting tlie intorcouise ef foreigners. 

(JasomirgottstraPe 2.) 

This is an Association of public utility, at whose Office 
any stranger or foreigner nuiy obtain valuable information 
free of charge, daily from 9 to 1 and from 3 to 6 o'clock. 
Sundays and holidays exce^jted. 


Most of the hotels, particularly the first-rate ones, are 
in the I. District, in which likewise the principal Sights 
are concentrated. In first-rate hotels rooms may be had at 

prirfs ruiii^iiii^- IVoiu 4 K to lu K, in tlie others from K 1.50 
to 4 K. In the other districts the prices are proportionably 
h)wer. Lighting and attendance are usually charged separa- 
tely. Almost all the hotels have diningrooms where a very 
good cuisine is mostly met with. In case of a prolonged 
stay it will be advisable to make a special arrangement. 
But few hotels have a table d'hote the rule being to dine 
a la carte. Dinner hours are from 12 to 5 o'clock.

It Is a usual, but often-censured, custom in Vienna to give fees 
(Trinkgeld). Kven persons in straitened circuuistances give the 
waiter in a restaurant or coffeehouse (sometimes even to the „boy") 
a giatnily of I to G hellers. The attention of the waiters is of course 
in prop<irtiiin to the amount of the fees given. The stranger will have 
to take this custom into account, if he w.-ints to be well attended to. 
.\t hotels the fees to the porter, waiters, chambermaid etc. are re- 
gulated b\ the lenglli of the liassenger's stay. The usual fees are: 
for cleaning the clothes 40 hellers a day, or 2 Kronen for 8 days. To 
the cbanibermaid who makes the bed and cleans the room al)out 
1 Krone for :! or 4 days, and as much again for 8 days. To the waiter 
porter etc. iu proportion to their services from 1 to 3 Kronen.

Fiacres and Comfortables. 

The fares for two -horse cabs (fiacres) and one-horse cabs 
(comfortables) are displayed in each vehicle. 

There is no regulation with regard to the number of persons 
occupying the cab. In this respect the passengers are left to do as 
they like. The fiacres are famed for their speed, ready wit and 
elegance but the passenger will have to beware of impositions and 
if need be he may appeal to the police. A small gratuity (Trinkgeld) 
is usually given to the driver, over and above the fare.

Vienna, the capital of the Empire and residence ot 
the Emperor, is situated in a plain, l)0unded by branches 
of the Bohemian and Moravian border-mountains, the Lesser 
Carpathian and Leitha mountains and the hills of the 
Wiener Wald which decline gently towards the city. A 
canal or arm of the Danube, to which the „Alserbach* 
and the little river ,,Wien" are tributaries, passes through 
the city. 

By an Act dated pec. 19''» 1890, passed at the initia- 
tive of H. M. the Emperor, all the suburban districts lying 
on the outskirts within the enlarged excise-jurisdiction 
established on May lO'li 18yi>, have been included, and 
the new municipal territory of the city now comprises the 
large area of 10.500 hectares with 1,-5 0.000 inhabitants and 
upward of 30.000 houses. The circumference of the new 
lioundary is 71 kilometres and has 42 excise stations which 
form the barriers. The new municipal territory is divided 
into 20 districts, to wit : I., the Interior City ; II., Leopold- 
stadt; III., LandstraBe; IV., Wieden : V.. Margarethen ; 
VI., Mariahilf; VII., Neubau : VIII., Josefstadt; IX., Alser-

nnd XX., Biigittenau. 

The local government is vested in the Mayor (Biirger- 
meister), whose election is confirmed l)y the Emperor, two 
deputy-mayors, 22 town-councillors and 158 memliers of 
the common council.

Historical SuF^cy. 

Vieniiit, it is genenilly assumed, was fuunrled by a 
Celtic tribe before the coniniencement of the Christian Era. 
Certain it is that in the first century after Chi-ist the Ro- 
nian.s established a fort here for strengthening their do- 
minion over the Danube territory, cind called it „Vindo- 
liona"*. — The Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius died here 
A, D. ISO. lu the fifth century the old military settlement, 
which had meanwhile developed into a town, was destroyed 
by the Huns and passed into the possesion of the Rugii, 
who gave it the name of „Faviana\ from which the pre- 
sent name of Wien is derived. The Rugii were dispossessed 
by the Longobardes and these by Charles the Great in 791. — 
About this time was founded the Ostmark as a bulwark 
against the incursions of the Avares and Magyares. the 
markgraves of which first resided at Melk o. D., and after- 
wards on the Kahlenberg. It was only under the Mark- 
grave Leopold III (surnamed the Saint) of the Babenberger 
family, that Vienna l>egan to prosper. 

Emperor Frederick Barbarossa in 1156 raised the Ost- 
mark to the rank of an independent Dukedom and invested 
the Babenberger Henry II (Jasomirgott). who removed his 
residence to Vienna, and thus gave rise to the development 
which in the ensuing centuries it was to acquire. He laid 
the foundation to St. Stephen's Cathedral (1144) and built 
a citadel on the .jHof"* (116'')- Duke Leopold VI (surnamed 
the (ilorious) in 1200 erected a castle on the site now 
occupied by the Hofburg. Under the reign of Leopold 1, 
Vienna improved very rapidly so that it might he ranked 
among the most impoi'tant towns of Southern Germany. 

After the extinction of the race of the Babenliergers 
(124()) Vienna, w^hich had sustained fearful troubles and 
visitations, was conc^uered in 1251 by Ottokar of Bohemia, 
under whose dominion it remained, not to its disadvantage, 
until in 12 Rudolph of Habsburg possessed himself of the 
town and became the founder of the Habsburg dynasty. 
Duke Rudolph IV in 1359 rebuilt St. Stephen's and in 13b5 
founded the University, in li85 the town was besieged and 
taken by Mathew Corvinus, king of Hungary. 

— no — 

In 1519 Vladislav, king of Hungary and Bohemia, 
and Sigismund, king of Poland, visited the Emperor Maxi- 
milian I, and on that occasion concluded the marriage of 
their children, whereby subsecjuently Bohemia, Moravia 
and Hungary came under the government of Austria; 
thence the well-known adage: 

„ Bella gevcuit alii, tu, felix Austria inibe: 
Natn qua Maris aliis daf tibi regiia Venus." 

Vienna had frec^uent opportunities of displaying its 
valour and ability in warfare, especially upon the rejieated 
incursions of the Turks, who with an army of 120.000 men 
under the command of Soliman H besieged the town in 
1529. but were defeated by the lirave resistance of Count 
Niclas Salm. In 1679 the plague swept away upwards of 
120.000 persons in Vienna, whereupon the existence of the 
town was again threatened in 1683 by an invasion by the 
Tu ks. With an army of more than 200.000 men Kara 
Mustapha marched up to the gates of the town, which he 
besieged from July ll-jOi to September 1 -Oi. The town was 
saved through the heroic defence of Count Rudigier of 
Starhembergh who for two months resisted a force ten 
times superior in number. John Sobieski, king of Poland, 
and Ludwig of Baden, at the head of the allied armies of 
Poland. Austria. Saxony, Bavaria and Franconia, routed 
the Turkish host. 

With Charles VI, who died in 1740, the male line of 
the Habsburgers became extinct, and the throne passed 
to the august Empress Maria Theresa. After a wise and 
powerful reign of 40 years. Maria Theresa died on the 
29O1 of November 1780, and was succeeded by her son, 
the illustrious Joseph II, whose reign of 10 yars was to 
the empire a brilliant epoch of unprecedented development 
in every department of political, scientific and social life. 
He died on the 20tii of February 1790. 

Under Joseph's successors, Leopold II and Francis I, 
there took place an entire reaction in the liberal system 
of internal policy, the influence of which asserted itself 
in the public life of Vienna, in addition to the hard times 
which followed upon the French wars. After the unfortu- 
nate battles of Austerlitz (1805) and Wagram (1809), 
Vienna for a short time fell into the power of Napoleon, 

— 31 — 

whereupon, after the defeat of the latter, the Congress of 
Vienna was held from November 3<1 , 1814 to June 9th, 
1815. After the termination of the French wars that me- 
lancholy time ensued, in which all intellectual life stagnated, 
in which the police, the censorship of the press, and the 
clergy exercised the most intolerable pressure on the po- 
pulation, which was only put an end to by the revolution 
of 1848. The struggle for liberation which began in the 
month of March ended with the bombardment and occu- 
pation of the town by the imperial troops under Prince 
Windischgraetz on the 31st of October, whereupon the 
Emperor Ferdinand I abdicated. 

On the 2<> of December 1848, Francis Joseph I ascended 
the throne, and under his reign Vienna has risen to a 
height never before imagined. Out of this eventful period 
of time we will call attention in chronological sequence 
to some of the moments of greatest importance, especially 
to Vienna. On the 2()"' of December 1857 was issued an 
imperial decree commanding the removal of the fortifica- 
tions and glacis which surrounded the interior town; the 
large extent of ground thereby obtained was to be devoted 
to the aggrandizement of the town. The grand projects 
which arose herefrom aroused the activity of numerous ex- 
cellent home and foreign artists who found abundant scope 
for the brilliant development of their talents. Under the 
fresh insi^iration of a new era the town acquired an im- 
portance in an artistic direction, the more remarkable from 
the fact that in the previous period of reaction almost all 
attemjjts in this direction seemed to have died out. While 
palaces and public buildings every where gave evidence 
of the creative powers of the great masters, there arose, 
as the most brilliant perfoimance of this art inspired epoch 
and as a triumph of modern architecture, the ,.Ringstrasse'', 
one of the most magnificent streets in the woi'ld. Among 
the architects who devoted their talents to this unexampled 
work, we may mention : Semper, Hansen, Schmidt. Hasenauer, 
Wielemans, Ferstel, Romano, Van der Niill. Siccardsburg; 
among the sculptors and painters who formed the new 
Vienna School of Art, the names of (ilasser, Fernkorn, Pilz, 
Kundmann, Tilgner, Weyr, Zum1)usch, as sculptors, and 
Kahl, Fiihrich, Overbeck, Griepenkerl, Eisenmenger, Makart, 
Canon, as painters are conspicuous. The most prominent 


Oij — 

of the new sculptors and painters are: L'AUemand, Alt, 
Amerling, Angeli, Felix. Friedlilnder, Gaul, Hoffmann, 
Laufherger, Lichtenfels, Natter, Pettenkofen, and others. 
The imperial act of enlarging the town has raised to 
Francis Joseph 1 a monument of gratitude in the hearts 
of the Viennese, whose loyalty and attachment to the im- 
perial House was still more strengthened l)y the conferring 
of a Constitution (on the 26^11 of February 1861). An entire 
transformation in the public tind social life of Vienna may 
be dated from that epoch in Avhich the imperial city, 
which had stagnated in superannuated forms, rose to one 
of the wealthiest and most beautiful cities of the world. 
In 1870 was begun the great work of the regulation of 
the Danube, which after contending with almost insupe- 
rable difficulties, was completed in 1877 at a cost of 32 
million florins. The river, which is connected with the 
town by means of the „Danube Canal", was turned into 
a new bed, whereby the impending danger of inundations 
is for ever averted. A no less gigantic enterjirise was that 
of the new Aqueduct, the construction of which lasted 
from 1870 to 187fi at a cost of 24 million florins. A brick- 
work conduit, 13 German miles in length, brings the water 
through numerous tunnels and over lofty aqueducts from 
the Alpine sources to the city. This great work makes 
Vienna one of the most healthy cities of Europe. In ce- 
lebration of the 25t'i anniversary of the Emperor's accession 
to the throne the Universal Exhibition was opened on 
May 1st 1873. In a truly imposing manner was the love 
and attachment of the Viennese to the dynasty manifested 
at the celebration of the Silver Wedding of the Emperor 
and Empress in 187'-'. With the support of all the Estates 
a Festive Procession was ai'ranged, the minutest details of 
which were designed and executed in truly artistic har- 
mony, such as no other town had ever witnessed, or is 
likely ever to l)ehold again. The lively interest Vienna 
takes in all scientihc pursuits was displayed at the Electric 
Exhibition in 1883, which was opened with a speech of 
great significance by its august Protector, the late Crown- 
prince Rudolph, and was attended with brilliant success. 
In 1888 on the 2'^ of December, His Majesty celebrated 
the 400i Jubilee of his reign, and Vienna solemnized the 
occasion suitably to its high significance by the arrange- 

— 33 — 

lupnt of ail Pjxliiliitioii of Trades, -whic-h atfordod a hrilliaiit 
and instructive view of the development of Industry and 
Art during that long epoch of His Majesty's reign. With 
the year 1S91 a new epoch commenceH for Vienna. Again, 
just as was the case 33 years before, it was the initiative 
of H. M. the Emperor that enabled the population of 
Vienna to realize their long-cherished wish that Vienna 
should lie united with its subui'bs. On the occasion of the 
opening of the park on the Tiirkenschanze, the Emperor 
siioke the momentous words : „lt is imperative that some- 
thing should be done for Vienna". Upon this instigation 
the (Tovernment worked out an Act for extending the 
boundary-line of the communal octroy, so as to deliver 
Vienna from the nuisance of the barrier-moat by means 
of a more ecjuable repartition of the duties. On the 19t'i 
of December 1890 the Bill was sanctioned which was to 
unite to a single community all the suburbs and parishes 
within the new boundary-line of the communal octroy with 
the city. This institution renders it possible to carry out 
the great projects that had long been contemplated. The 
construction of a Metropolitan Railway, the regulation and 
partial over-arching of the Wien-river, and the construction 
of a winter-harbour in the Danube-Canal, are the far- 
reaching improvements the realization of which is insured 
l»y a system of contributions from the State, the country 
and the metroiJolis. The new enlargement of Vienna has 
imparted a fresh impulse to trade and industry, not only 
l)y remedying the want of employment for the masses, 
which had been sorely felt for some years past, but also 
by opening up new channels to capital which, owing to 
the numerous improvements to be made, has been pro- 
ductive of new sources of income to all classes of the po- 

Character of the People. The characteristic qualities 
of the Viennese are justly considered to be joviality and 
good-nature. 'J'he hearts of the people are open to sym- 
pathy and they feel happiest when they have an oppor- 
tunity of showing kindness. Public amusements, be they 
ever so numerously attended, alwaj's pass oft' in a harmless 
and jovial manner. In no other large city does the stranger 
feel at home so quickly as in Vienna, and with a letter 

Gnide of Vicuna. 3

of introduction, it is easy to gain admittance into society. 
Every Viennese is fond ot music and dancing, loves to 
spend his leisure hours in merry company, attends theatres 
and concerts, but above all he delights in the pleasures 
of rural life w^hich he can so amjjly enjoy in the lovely 
environs of his native city. The beauty of the Vienna vsro- 
men, which is displayed in a great variety of types, is 
far-famed. Their reputation of being the truest wives, the 
best mothers and the most admirable housekeepers is un- 

A full and true description of the life and habits of 
the people with all that is worth knowing from the olden 
times down to the present day is given in a work entitled 
„Stadtebild Wien" by Friedrich Schlogl, and it is recom- 
mended to every visitor to Vienna as pleasant and in- 
structive reading.

For obtaining a general impression of the sights and 
monumental edifices of the city, we recommend, in the 
first place, a walk to the S tefanspl atz, the centre of 
the interior city, where all the traffic and public life is 
concentrated, and to the Graben", a broad street with 
the most elegant and fashionable shops. From here the 
stranger may take a drive or walk round the Ringstrasse 
and a portion of the city through the following streets : 
From the Stefansplatz (* interior of St. Stephen's Ca- 
thedral, perhaps an ascent of the steeple) to the Stock-

marking the spot to which the Wienerwald formerly ex-

Cathedral, column in commemoration of the plague), to

— This museum comprises the collections of the old 
arsenal, a portion of the Imperial Armory, as well as 
new acquisitions, and is intended to illustrate the hi- 
story of the Austrian Army since the beginning of the 
Thirty -years' War, but many of the objects exhibited are 
of far older date. 

In front of the Museum is the Collection of Ord- 
nance, consisting of 303 pieces, from the XIV century 
down to the present day. On the left side the visitor 
sees two rows of Austrian guns in chronological order, 
the most prominent being a stone mortar of the XVI 
century, with a calibre of 88 cm., also finely cast pieces 
of the XVI, XVII and XVIII centuries ; the back row 
displays the different systems of this century. On the 
right side we see foreign pieces, mostly captured, to 
wit: in the front row, Italian guns, (some of the fore- 
most being masterpieces by John of Arbe of Ragusa and 
Hieron. Vitalis of Cremona, XVI century, as well as 
handsome Venetian mortars of the XVII. century). Swiss, 
Spanish, English, Danish, Polish (among them a magni- 
iicent gun of Frederick Augustus III of the year 1741), 
Russian, Turkish and German guns (one of the most 
magnificent being the richly ornamented gun of the 
town of Liibeck, cast in 1669 by H. Benningk) ; in the 
back row are French, Prussian and Bavarian guns (among 
the latter are twelve cast by Balthasar Herold for the 
town of Nuremberg, with the names and symbols of 
the months. 

The edifice of the Museum was built by Hansen 
in 1858, and the central portions got up with great 
magnificence. The pillars of the vestibule are adorned 
with 58 marble statues of Austrian heroes (among them 
Rudolf of Habsburg, Prince Eugen, Count Buquoy, Mar- 
grave Louis of Badenj. The staircase displays the statues 
of Radetzky, Haynau, Windischgraetz and Jellachich, 
a ceiling richly adorned with allegorical frescoes by 
Rahl, and a grouji by Benk — Austria protecting her 

The Ruhmeshalle (Hall of Fame), consisting of 
the central hall surmounted l>y a cupola 23 metres in 
height, and two smaller halls connected with the former 
by open colonnades, is adorned with frescoes by C. Blaas,

nated by the facade at the back of the building. The 
central structure has an imposing disposition of pillars

of a fine marble-grained stone from Istria; the principal 
storey is relieved by pillars of violet-tinted marble. The

of Bacchus by Weyv. The attica is surmounted by an 
Apollo in sitting posture, supported by the Muse of 
tragedy and comedy, by Kundmann. Nine busts of 
poets, sculptured by Tilgner. adorn the pediments of 
the windows in the Ring. They represent: Calderon, 
Shakespeare, Moliere, Lessing, Goethe, Schiller, Hebbel, 
Grillparzer and Halm. In the spandrels of the windows 
are representations, by Weyr, of nine loving couples 
which have been sung by poets, to wit: Rosaura and 
Sigismund, Hamlet and Ophelia, Harpngon and Rosine, 
Minna von Barnhelm and Tellheim. Faust and Margaret. 
Jeanne d"Arc and Talbot, Siegfried and Chrieiiihild, 
Jason and Medea. Ingomar and Parthenia. The fayade 
at the back of the building, as well as those at the 
sides, are adorned by statues of the classic and romantic 
art, by Edmund Ho'fmann. The niches in the fayade 
and wings at the back contain groups by Benk. sym- 
liolizing the dramatic passions of Man : Love and Hate, 
Heroism and Egoism, Lust of power and Humility ; six 
medallions in alto-relief by Otto Konig supply an 
allegorical commentary to these groups. The principal 
window of the projecture at the back is adorned by a 
pair of spandrels by Weyr: Antigone and Oedipus; 
the spandrels of the other windows display ten pairs 
of iigures by Weyr, Tilgner. Silbernagl and 
Costenoble. They represent Kly temnestra and Orestes

pides, Cid and Ximene after Corneille, Tancred and 
Amenaide after Voltaire, Turandot and Kalaph after 
Gozzi. Donna Diana and Perin after Moreto, Kilthchen

addition to these there are figures at the sides of the 
central structure, representing the dramatic poetry of 
all nations: Prometheus, Genoveva, the Judge of Zala- 
mea, Falstatf, Phaedra and Harlequin, to denote the 
beginning of the German drama in Vienna. A host of 
genii, children of centaurs, love-gods and Victorias 
populate the topmost regions of the edifice. The places 
of entrance and exit are all copiously decorated. Nine 
doors lead into the semi-circular general entrance-hall; 

— 6S — 

the two ntair-cases leading up to the parquet and the 
tiers of boxes are ahnost overcharged with artistic 
ornamentation. High, monumental windows break the 
length of the space which is enlivened by fine dispo- 
sitions of Corinthian imbedded columns and pilasters. 
In each of the niches stand 8 statues of famous actors 
of all nations ; in open arched niches are seen ideal 
groups by Benk, representing, in one of the staii'- 
cases, Wisdom and Beauty, the latter embodying the 
features of the much-lamented Josephine Wessely, in 
the other stair-case, Truth and Fiction. Each five cei- 
ling pictures, painted in lustreless oil-colours by the 
brothers Klimt and Matsch, represent scenes from the 
history of the scenic art. Four plastic medallions by 
Weyr complete the artistic decoration of the ceilings 
of the stair-cases. Each of the principal stair-cases leads 
into a vestibule adorned with statues of celebrated actors 
and dramatic authors, and ceiling-paintings by Karger. 
The vestibule ojiens into the upper rows of boxes and 
the large foyer. The grand attraction in the latter is 
the portrait-gallery of the Burg-Theatre, founded in 1786 
by Emperor Joseph II. It commences with P r e h au s e r 
and is continued to the present day, one of the last 
being the excellent portrait of the late Meixner in 
the character of Vansen, painted by Fux. The five 
court-boxes, with the apartments in connection with 
them, are on the ground-floor, and open into a brilli- 
antly-lighted corridor. A much-admired statue .Klytia' 
by Benk on a pedestal of onyx adorns the stairs lead- 
ing to the grand-box used on festive occasions. The 
Imperial apartments are fitted up with the chastest 
elegance. For permission to view the theatre

INFuseum of Art History). I.. Uurgring. The building of 
the ^Museum of Art History was begun by Baron 
Hasenauer in 1872, simultaneously with that of Natural 
History which is directly opjaosite, and the exteriors of 
both were completed in 1881. The internal arrange- 
ment and entire completion occupied further 10 j^ears, 
and it was opened in If 91. 

In external appearance and dimensions as well as 
in ax'cliitectural execution this Building is quite analo- 
gous to the Museum of Natural History ; it forms, like 
the latter, an edifice rising in four stories upon an 
oblong quadrangle. The principal facade faces the Mo- 
nument of Maria Theresa and the long horizontal line 
is relieved by a central structure surmounted by an 
attica, and two corner projectures. 

The to])niost adornment of the cupola is the colos- 
sal statue of Pallas Athena by Johannes Benk. 
Allegorical figures and high-reliefs adorn the four turrets 
arranged around the tambour of the cupola and the 

On the ])arapet of the roof, all around the entire 
building, are placed statues, the ideal and real jjortraits 
of eminent artists and promoters of art. Above the 
windows of the second floor a number of master-spirits 
of art are represented by heads, whose names are 
inscribed on the marble tablets over the windows of 
the first floor. The interior is as richly adorned as the 
exterior with sculptural and pictorial embellishments. 
The entrance to the Museum of Art History is from 
the Museumsplatz. Three large gates open into the 
magnificent vestibule over-arched by a cupola. From 
the vestibule a couple of steps lead into the rooms on 
the raised ground-floor. The central staircase leads 
halfway up, and then branches ott' right and left into 
the first floor; on the central landing, prominently con- 
spicuous, stands the Group o f T h e s e u s by C a n o v a.

Art with its prominent representatives. Further, 12 Ki-

medaillions etc., by Berger, Eisenmenger, Franz 
Simm, Kargei", Kuss, Fischer, Laufberger and 

The art-historical collections occupy 23 large and 
16 smaller rooms on the raised ground-floor. The first 
floor contains the picture-gallery in 14 large sky-lit 
rooms and 15 lateral rooms, and 13 rooms of the second 
floor are devoted to the collection of water-colour i^aint- 
ings. The other rooms of the building serve as offices,

Collection of Water-colour Paiutiugs and Drawings. 

The water-colour paintings and drawings are exhibited 
on the second floor, in Rooms XXXY to XL. and XLI to 
XLVl; they occupy the principal front to the west, and 
partly also the north ancl south sides of the Museum. The 
collection consists almost entirely of works of modern art. 
excepting single objects in Room XLV. which belong partly 
to the Inst century or even to a yet earlier period. In ad- 
dition to the paintings in water-colours and drawings below 
mentioned, the Rooms contain various works of plastic art. 
I'onsisting in groujis, figures, busts, reliefs by modern 
masters, as well as the artistically executed caskets and 
covers of the Crownprince Rudol])h"s Album, the water- 
colour paintings of the Vienna Exhibition of 1873, &c.. to 
all of which are attached explanatory lables. The collection 
is numbered consecutively, beginning in Room XXXY on 
the 2'1 floor, from where they are continued regularly 
through all the rooms to XL, and in the department on 
the opposite side from XLI to XLVl.

Museum, iiaturhistorisclies, k. k. (The Imperial Court 
Museum of Natural-History), I. Burgring. In external appear- 
ance and dimensions as well as in architectural execution 
this Building is exactly analogous to its opposite neigh- 
bour, the Museum of Art History, it forms like the latter, 
a cpiadrangle 170 metres in length and 70 metres in breadth, 
the height being 27 metres, and is divided into four storeys. 
The building is surmounted by a cupola, the total height 
of which is 33 metres. The topmost adornment of this 
cujiola is the colossal statue of the sun-god Helios, as a 
symbol of the vivifying element of Nature. The statue is 
by Johannes Benk. 

On the pnrapet of the roof, all round the entire build- 
ing, are placed 34 portrait statues, three metres in height, 
in memory of the men who have been pioneers of science 
from the ages of antiquity down to modern times; and 
to these are added 64 portrait-heads of celebrated natu- 
ralists of all times, above the windows of the second floor, 
their names being inscribed in golden characters upon red 
marble over the windows of the first floor. Great care has 
been bestowed ujjon the artistic decoration of the grand 
stair-case, the crowning ornament of which is a gigantic 
fresco painting on the ceiling, liy Canon: „The circular 

— 101) — 

motion of life". The excellently lighted rooms of the high- 
parterre and first floor, which are marked with running 
naniber.s 1 to XXXIX, are devoted to the collections of the 
Zoological Department. The paintings in oil, which adorn 
the walls of these rooms, generally refer to the objects 
exhibited, and serve as furthe' illustrations of them. On 
the second floor, the rooms L to LIV contain the collections 
of the Botanical Department. 

Rooms I — V. Mineralogic-petrographical Department. 
The objects in this department form the oldest portion of 
the collections united in the Court Museum of Natural 
History, of which in 1747 Emp. Francis I. laid the foun- 
dation by the purchase of the collection of Ha ill on, 
which chiefly consisted of minerals. To this monarch's 
fondness for the pursuits of science is attributable the de- 
velopment and extension, unusually rapid for those times, 
of the mineralogical collection, which was accomplished 
by numerous purchases at high prices, and the fltting out 
of special expeditions. Also his successors, Empress Maria 
Theresa, Emperor .Joseph II and Francis II, by their per- 
sonal interest, in placing orders with mining works, in 
.sending out expeditions and purchasing large collections, 
promoted the success and rapid extension of the Institute, 
while the Empress Maria Theresa, by depositing the me- 
teorite fallen at Hraschina near Agram in the bnperial 
Treasurj' of Vienna, laid the foundation of the collection 
of meteorites, that has since obtained world-wide celebrity, 
with the help of which the renowned physicist and in- 
vestigator of meteorites, Chladni. was enabled, at the 
beginning of our century, to publish his fundamental works 
on the meteoric nature of these bodies. 

Amid the political complications at the beginning of 
our century, however, the personal interference of the 
Monarch began ever more and more to fall ofl*, and from 
this time forward the history of the Collection has been 
decided by the energy and activity of each successive 

During the tifty-years' epoch from 1806 to lH.5(i the 
Institute was directed by two men (C. F. Schreiber.s, 
180G to 1835. and Paul Partsch, 1836— 185fi) who im- 
pressed upon it the stamp of a scientiflc establishment of 
the highest order, for besides veiy extensive additions to 

— 110 — 

the collections in every department, comprising meteorites, 
minerals and stones, they formed an exceedingly complete 
library on the subject and furnished the Institute with all 
the instruments then in use. 

Later on the collection of meteorites was largely in- 
creased through the exertions of W. von Haidinger, Di- 
rector of the Imp. Geological Institute, who from 1858 
till his death in 1870 gave it the benefit of his extensive 
relations with all the scientific men in his line. 

In recent times the collection has attained dimensions, 
by means of donations and purchases, of a magnitude never 
before imagined. This manifested itself at the opening of 
the new Building in 1881) and again in the new placings 
and augmentations made in the course of this year (which 
are already taken into consideration in this Guide). 

The objects exhibited are numbered consecutively in 
each of the Rooms I — V of the High-Parterre (as well as 
in all the other departments), the numbers beginning, 
according to circumstances, sometimes at the Cases in the 
middle, sometimes at those along the walls, and show in 
arithmetical order the way the visitor has to go for viewing 
the different collections in their proper order. 

Room I. Cases in the middle, 1, 2, 4 and 5, con- 
tain a terminological collection for illustrating the tech- 
nical terms and general properties of f he minerals. Besides 
many other remarkable pieces, such as the Euklas-crystals 
(unit 3), emeralds (4), diamonds and calcit-twins (5), den- 
troitic silver (18), we may point out a series of specimens, 
in the fourth Case in the middle, exemplifying the different 
colours, which are perfectly unicjue as regards l)eauty and 

Upon the third Case in the middle are placed, under 
glass bells, several eminently fine specimens of minerals: 
three pieces of amianthiform skolezite in the basalt of 
Miickenhan, some flos ferri from Eisenerz, a druse of trans- 
parent cubes, half a foot in length, of the rock-salt of 
Wieliczka, and a group of artificially prepared crystals of 
nickle-ammonium sulphate. 

The Cases along the walls of this room contain a 
dynamic collection of minerals, beginning at the wall of 
egress, with an exceedingly rich collection of sinter for- 
mations, principally (in units) of limespar, besides (in 

— Ill — 

3 units) those of numerous other minerals. The pieces 
in this Case are placed in their natural positions, the 
stalactitic formations (produced by droppinjfs from above) 
hanging point downwards : the stalagmitic formations (pro- 
duced by drops upon a certain spot below) standing with 
the point upwards. The units 104 to 106, at a height of 
about 40 centimetres from the base of the units, denote a 
water-level, all that is l)elow this level is sul)merse (formed 
imder water), all that is above it is formed above water. 
Worthy of notice are the sinter tubes (unit 101) which 
represent the beginning of the sinter formation, a broken 
stalagmite which continued to grow at right angle (103), 
several flat veils, and one rolled up (104 and 105). the snow- 
white Laurion stalactites (106), the gigantic stalactite of 
Aragonite (flos ferri) from New Mexico (107) t*cc. 

Along l)y the windows is a beautiful stalactite of 
l)yrites (white iron-pyrites 117), a treble stalagmite fi-om 
Adelsberg (119), and a group of large quartz-blocks on 
a common i^edestal (122). among which is a fine rock- 
crystal one metre in length from Madagascar, and a thick 
columnar smoky topaz from the wellknown crystal cave on 
llie Tiefengletscher in Switzerland. 

The entrance-wall exhibits specimens exemplifying the 
formation of minerals in druses and on gangs, mighty pieces 
chiefly from the silver and lead mines of Prziliram, an un- 
commonly large ovum covered on the inside with zeolite- 
crystals (an almond-stone formation from Salesl in Bohemia 
(unit 135), etc. 

The wall at the back contains on steps a collection 
of smaller pieces of pseudomorphoses, transformed minerals 
that have retained their original external form while the 
substance has undergone a chemical transformation. Above 
these steps along the wall are pieces exemplifying the 
mechanical and chemical process of alteration, 141 a large 
enhydros (water-stone), chalcedongeode filled up to ^ ., with 
water, 144 and 145 globular formations by various pro- 
cesses, 151 — 158 large ores of pseudomorphoses. 

Among the pictures in this room the most noticeable 
are the one in the middle by Brioschi, the diamond 
fields at the Cape (Griqiialand West) and the picture by 
Bernatzik on the wall of egress, hydraulic gold-extraction 
in the Sierra Nevada, where the banks of auriferous rubble 

— 112 — 

are washed down by enormous jets of water under a water- 
pressure of 2 — 300 metres. 

Room II: The five cases in the middle exhibit the 
beginning of the systematic collection of minerals in small 
specimens; chief among them the diamonds of (Iriqualand 
in the matrix (unit 1), silver from Kongsberg (7) Gold (11 — 14), 
the largest known crj^stal of Hungarian Hauerite (sulphuret 
of manganese) (32). variegated hematite (red-iron-ore) from 
the Island of Elba (94). " 

Along three walls are pieces illustrating the systematic 
collection, the wall of egress showing elements, sulphurets 
and oxydes. especially (101) a large diamond-octahedron 
in the matrix, also here and in ( 102) large auriferous quartz 
pebbles from Bolivia, and a large silver specimen from 
Peru, both brought by the Conquistadores to Spain and 
from thence with the Ambras collection to Tyrol. Also in 
(102) one of the largest-known platinum blocks, and anti- 
monite from Japan, and in (104) nagyagite with crystals 
an inch long. 

Along the wall by the windows three gigantic blocks 
of salt from Leopoldshall (crystallized), Ronaszeg in Hun- 
gary (a high pyramid with streaks of stratiiication) and 
from Poonah, East Indies. 

Along the wall of entrance are specimens of haloides 
and carbonates, the most remarkable being the lime-sj^ars 
and aragonites (flos ferri). 

The back wall contains the beginning of the technical 
collection, mining and smelting products, on the steps 
small pieces representing the raw materials of the different 
j^rocesses, above them collections more or less complete 
of several important workings of mines, beginning with the 
gangaes and proceeding to the ores, the minerals found in 
them, the process of dressing and finally of smelting the 
ores. An object of particular mineralogical interest is (142) 
the diaphorite (silver ore) in twin crystals a centimetre in 
length, (147) two specimens of prousite (light-red silver ore). 
Among the pictures of the room we may call attention 
to the coal open-working at Dux (Alois Schonn). 

Room III. The five cases in the middle contain the 
continuation of the .systematic hand collection; in (23) 
specimens of atakamite. (35) heart shaped calcite twins from 
Egremont, at the head of the third middle case, (50) en- 

— 113 — 

closed in ii tabernacle, the bouquet of precious stones 
presented by Empress Maria Theresa to her husband Eirip. 
Francis 1; the same receptacle contains, in front left, the 
hirs^e opal weighing 594 grammes from Czerwenitza; in 
front right, the specimen of emerald represented in the 
picture in Room Yl. Among the other i)ieces of prominence 
are the Azurites (l)lue copper-ore) from Chessy (unit 65), 
parisite wi;h emerald from Santa Fe and phosgenite from 
Monteponi (fiS), wulfenite from Red Cloud, yellow and white 
scheelite from Sulzbach, Rauris and Schlaggenwald (ft5). 

Along the wall of egress, continuation of the specimens 
relating to the systematic collection : prominent among 
them, l)arytes from Oberosiern, Felsubaiiya. Przibram and 
Dufton (101 — 102). krokoit (redlead-ore 103), the mimete- 
sites from Johangeorgenstadt , also a colossal apatite:- 
crystal from Bamle as well as from the Zillerthal and 
Belmont (107). 

Along by the windows in three Desks is the collection 
of precious stones, the middle one containing the precious 
stones proper, to wit: first unit (118), raw pieces with large 
diamonds implanted in the native ore, from Griqualand, an 
emerald noted for the beauty of its colour; second unit 
(119) ring stones with fine coloured diamonds (esijecially a 
sapphirine-blue and a yellow one), a deep-blue sapphire, 
and others.

Cases along the wall. Conclusion of the technical 
collection. Building materials : The most complete collection 
of the kind ; arranged topographically according to employ- 
ment and to the places where found. Prominent is the 
collection of the building materials of ancient Kome (179 
to 182). Above the cases along the entrance wall, in two 
tableaux, are the most inn^ortant Austrian stones for deco- 
rative purposes, in large cut and polished tablets. 

Room V. Along the walls, the collection of rocks: in 
unit (1 — 3) the stone-forming minerals, (4 — 11) terminology, 
(4 — 8) peculiarities of structure, (8 — 11; tectonics, manner 
of formation &c., (12-32j systematics, (12—22) vulcanic 
and pliitonic rocks, (23—27) crystalline slates, (31— 3a) 
clastic and simple rocks, finally (35—37) and (41—65) local 
suites, among which is pre-eminent the Vesuvius (43 -45) 
with its rich association of minerals and rocks. 

The three window-tables and six middle cases of this 
room contain the world-famed collection of meteorites, the 
richest in the world, which (at the end of 1891), exemplifies 
460 out of the 500 localities of meteorites known. 

The window-tables contain a terminological collection 
of meteorites: unit (28) historical data referring to meteo- 
rites, a collection of antique (chiefly (Grecian) coins with 
representations of meteorites worshipped as deities (baetylii). 
dust-falls and blood-rain, as Avell as substances erroneously 
taken for meteorites (pseudo-meteorites). Units 29 and 30, 
component parts of meteorites in admirable preparations, 
showing the nature of the crust and interior, plates etched 
bj' ditierent methods, &c. The second and third tables 
(units 34 a— b and 38 40) contain numerous plates of 
stone and iron meteorites, in which the most important 
petrographic groups of meteorites are represented by emi- 
nently beautiful specimens. Among these we may call 
attention, on account of their size, to the plates of the 
dark green stone of Bluff, the niesosiderite of Miney, the 
pallasites of Eagle and Brenham, and the irons of Butler, 
Bella K-oca, Carlton, Toluca, txlorietta and Coahuila. 

The principal collection in the six middle cases is 
divided into the systematic collection projjer of the medium 
and small pieces accommodated in the second to fifth 
middle-cases, and the collection of large pieces in the first 

— 115 — 

case (meteoric-stones and lithosiderites) and in the sixth 
case (meteoric-iron). 

The most conspicuous among tlic large stones (unit 
4(; — 51) is the stone of Knyahinya, Hungary, HOO kilos in 
weight, the largest of all the meteor-stones known, the 
phenomenon of the fall of which is represented in the 
middle mural-painting in this room. The next piece in size 
is the stone of Lanc6 in France, 47 kilos ; the stones of 
Tieschitz, Mezo-Madarasz, Veresegyhaza, Pultusk, Krawin. 
and Znorow, the mesosiderites of Estherville and Miney, 
the pallasite of Eagle. Ix-sides many other entire stones 
and large fragments. 

In the last case (unit 116—121) containing the large 
irons, the most conspicuous is the large oblong piece in 
the shape of a flattened cigar, the Iron of Babbs Mill 
weighing 129 kilos; next to it, in front the iron of Kok- 
stad shaped like a half-jawbone, probably a portion of a 
broken meteorite-ring; at the back, the iron of Hex River. 
In the two front corners of the case stand the two most 
valuable pieces of the collection: the iron of Hraschina 
near Agram, which fell in 1751 (H9 kilos) and that of 
Cabin Creek, Arkansas, which fell in 1880 (47 kilos). Both 
of these were seen falling, and they are both remarkable 
for the thin fusing crust in front and the thick bark-like 
crust of slag at the back. 

Among the other pieces in this case is the iron of 
<ilorieta in New-Mexico (52 lilos). that of Elbogen 79 kilos. 
sup])oscd to have been found prior to the year 1400, the 
iron from the Desert of Bolson de Mapini (198 kilos), that 
of .loe Wright (32 kilos), Catorze (Descubridora. 41 kilos). 
Nelson (32 kilos), large lilocks of iron from the Toluca 
Valley (30—53 kilos), and large blocks of telluric iron from 
(ireenland (Disco island, 41 kilos), and Santa Catarina 
Brazils (35 kilos . 

From among the number of medium-sized and smaller 
pieces we will only point out some of the many perfectly- 
encrusted individuals from several very abundant falls, 
such as of Mocs (3. February 1832), Knyahinya (9, .Tune 
1800). Pultusk (30. January 1878), Forest (2. May 1890), 
and Estherville (10. May 187i)): the latter is remarkable 
from its abundance- of iron and its veiT coarse-grained 


— 116 — 

texture, and from its having furnished a hail of crusted 
iron grains, small stones and mixed grains. 

In the middle of the fourth case stands one of the 
most valuable pieces of the collection, the Iron of Mazapil. 
Mexico (4 kilos), vrhich fell on the 27. November 1885, 
simultaneously with the swarm of shooting-stars which took 
the place of the broken-up comet of Biela; it is also the 
thircl entire iron that the Vienna collection possesses out 
of the seven that were observed while falling (Hraschina, 
Charlotte, Braunau. Nedagolla, Rowton. Mazapil, Cabin 

Among the pictures on the wall of Room V, the middle 
one, as before mentioned, represents the fall near Knya- 
hinya, the two j^ictures at the sides, represent the interiors 
of the old Court Mineral Cabinet, these two rooms having 
a historical importance for the history of the Court col- 
lection of natural history.

lection, these five Rooms exhibit only the stratified rocks 
that produce petrifactions, especially the remains of ani- 
mals and plants which inhabited our planet in ever varying 
forms in the successive periods of time in the history of 
the earth.

paleontological collection is the Froterosaiii-us Speneri 
(GO A), the largest saurian known of the paleozoic time. 
It was found in 1733.
